No specimen available

Found in the moss/pine area, still fruiting in large numbers scattered and in arcs around the trunks of pine trees. They form “mushrumps” under the duff, some of which have been hollowed out by the mushroom decaying or being eaten by something, others with intact ones; some with the duff fallen or knocked off.

Did you taste it?

It reminds of the bitter-tasting Tricholoma aestuans (very pale yellowish gills and a slightly pink tone in the stem). In my mind, the gills and stem look too pale for flavovirens.
